The Fueling the Frontlines Awards celebrate local leaders whose commitment, passion and work inspire others and meaningfully advance LGBTQI justice in our communities.

Performing on the night will be award-winning, genre-bending musical artists Climbing PoeTree, whose work has been described by Professor Angela Davis as “urgent, powerful, and beautiful.”

Fueling the Frontlines is the Astraea Foundation’s 3-year, $20 million campaign to provide critical resources and support to grassroots LGBTQI activists and organizations across the globe. The Campaign supports activism and action in areas where the need for resources is greatest, with Astraea’s support often representing the first major infusion of funding for a vast majority of our grantee partners. Campaign supporters are individuals, institutions, government agencies, donor alliances and for-profit companies committed to achieving justice, respect and equality for everyone. We invite you to join us in this work.
